So your deep take is "things change" but also "things may not have changed, as the quality may not have declined?" Also "the strategy was a success" but also "people are only grumbling because the business filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy?"who gassed you bro? If anyone on SF tries too hard it's you.
Things change - as you noted - and so all I'm saying is should BB not also be expected to change? They tried different things over the years (OMG) and some worked and some didn't. You think American-made BMWs are any good? Yet for many, BMW is one of the the luxury standards for autos - and prolly not for others. Who cares?
Client's tastes evolve and they leave BB and move on to other brands while many people will perhaps be discovering BB at the same (damn) time. It's a cycle you cannot combat.
If you think that Brooks Brothers changed, then it seems reasonable to say whether you think those changes were for the good, either from a financial or enthusiast point of view.
